Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, the final work by this composer who died of tuberculosis aged 26, has achieved mythical status, probably due to its blend of utterly unique tenderness and pathos. Rousseau stated that “the first verse of the Stabat was the most perfect and touching verse ever penned by a musician”. A less well-known fact is that the work was composed for the aristocratic brotherhood of the Church of Santa Maria dei Sette Dolori to replace another Stabat Mater by a certain Alessandro Scarlatti. La Grande Ecurie et la Chambre du Roy is placing these two Stabat Maters in counterpoint here. As is customary at the Grande-Écurie, the twin roles will go to two young singers: the charming Maïlys De Villoutreys and the elegant Paul Figuier.
